I hate to say it but I've never seen the word jobber used before. could you describe it for me? Sorry for my Americannessjust check out blue streak standard ps189 at your local jobber i believe that's what your looking for
I haven't pulled the switch to measure but I got the info from a thread on the boards here by Alfisto Steve . I'll link it below.A jobber is an aftermarket parts retailer - includes auto parts stores such as Pep Boys, Napa, Advance... anything but the new car dealer's parts counter.
Are you sure about the thread? The only M10 x 1.25 switch I can find is intended for the RX8 and has three terminals. Centerline just mentions coarse and fine threads. Could it be something else? You will have to pull the switch and measure.
M10 1.25 seems so peculiar that I would suggest to use a steel adapter if space allows, and use a more common M10 x 1.0 switch. Not sure the one on my link would be the right one, the description is a bit shallow. A competent machinist could make one as well. Avoid brass, it fatigues and will crack.
Thank you so much for all the help! I'll definitely give these options a try!
Wow. It's so cool to have access to so much great information! Thanks again guys!Hello
With the information Mike (Jett) added above, the part number I started with is not relevant for the coarse thread gizmo. He's a second generation Alfa parts specialist, you can trust him. I first met his father at the parts counter of our main Alfa dealership 43 years ago.
